I purchased these boots as a gift. They run a bit larger than traditional sizes. They are also quite stiff at first and do take time to break in. However, I am told that after they break in they are extremely comfortable. I purchased these directly through Zappos because their customer service is stellar.

These are probably the best boots that I have purchased. Yes, they will be painful in the beginning. In fact, I almost returned them back when I got them 2 weeks ago. But now, they are becoming more and more comfortable as each day goes by. I would recommend resisting the urge to buy a size up, because initially you will feel that they are a bit tight. Once you start breaking into them, they will become comfortable. I would highly recommending getting a shoe horn, otherwise you will be spending 5 minutes each day getting into them. I would also highly recommend getting thick socks to help with the break in process. Besides the painful break in period, these boots are great. They feel great and look great! Highly recommend getting this boot!

The leather is absolutely top quality, the look is perfect, look great with everything from khakis to jeans. Still in the break in period but I can tell they will last and the comfort of these boots increases every day. Sizing for me was half size smaller. I wear 11.5 in Nike, Clarks. and 11 fits great in the Beckman. You are going to get what you pay for with these, QUALITY. be prepared to break them in thoroughly before you fully enjoy them.

I looked at a few different styles and pairs before deciding on these: another set of Red Wings from JCrew that seemed to have lesser fit and finished, and in fact different sized boots, as well as a pair of Chippewas that were nice overall but too narrow. This pair was the best fit and the highest quality--I could not be more happy with them. Lots of compliments and they feel amazing. Don't hesitate to be picky when spending this much.

Great durable boot that will last for years. Initially I was sent the wrong IR entirely(size, color, and sole) but Andrew in customer service took great care of me and overnighted me two different sizes for no charge. I recommend trying multiple sizes here. I wear an 8-8.5 running shoe, 7.5 perfectly fitting pair of Anderson Beans, and a super tight size 7 in another type of boot. The 6.5 IR is bigger than all of those. Breaking in nicely and very comfortable.

Great boot. My second pair of red wings but first pair that fits properly. I wish other models came in EE sizes! Red Wing (and other Brands) should step it up in respects to size options! I can't imagine everyone being a "D" width if they are truly looking for a great fitting boot/shoe. I would order these 1/2 size down from "normal" boot size. At this much per pair, these boots cost about per year! Great value!

Returned the boot as it just wasn't wide enough. I have very wide feet so I knew it was a gamble going in, although a minor one with Zappos :) The leather is really, really nice. It has this velvety texture to it that accepts daily wear with ease. Don't like a mark on the leather from accidentally bumping a chair? No problem, rub it with your fingers and it disappears. Quality appears to be top notch, just wasn't the right size for me.

I purchased a pair of these a little over a year ago and have been extremely impressed with their quality and performance. The leather is of high quality, the craftsmanship is on par or better than shoes I've purchased from Allen Edmonds and Alden, and the service from Redwing is great. To address some things I have seen in other reviews I will offer this: These shoes are almost entirely leather so they should feel tight when first wearing them as they stretch and mold to your foot over time. They should not be painful but they should be snug. If conditioned regularly and taken care of they will will mold to your feet and gain a fantastic patina. I have had the rubber heel peel off slightly but I've fixed it by purchasing a $4.00 tube of 'Shoe Goo' from my local grocery store and have had zero issues since. In my experience this is a common problem with high quality shoes that come with glued rubber soles. This does not deter me at all. Regarding customer service, I had a strange issue where the leather in my boots did not match. Initially they looked the same but as they broke in the two boots took on distinctively different looks. I sent a picture to RedWing customer support and detailed how I take care of my shoes. A few days later they got back to me with an apology and sent a brand new pair to me on them. In my opinion, accidents and quality mistakes happen with every company. RedWing went above and beyond to address the problem and make it right. There is nothing more I could have asked them to do. As a side note, many local RedWing retailers offer free conditioning and if purchased at their store, free laces for the life of the shoe. If you are living in Colorado I can personally vouch for this in the Boulder store.

These are the best boots I've ever owned. The black ones are my second pair. They will mold to your foot. If you take care of them, they are almost indestructible. My two pairs are my everyday shoes.

Great quality and design. I can also get them in the snow and they work great. These are my new favorite jeans boots. They are worth the cost versus less expensive copies. I oiled the tongue for quicker break in. I normally wear a 44 in an Ecco and ordered these in a 10½.

These are amazing boots! I get compliments on them all the time. Please beware that they take a little time to break in. The comfort factor may disappoint you at first. Suck it up and wear them for a week to break them in and you will be very happy.

I feel in love with these boots the second I opened the box. I was tired of messing around with boots that looked good but were not built to last. These Red Wings accomplish both. As soon as I tried them on, I wanted to wear them forever. I read the reviews in regards to sizing, and went ahead and took a chance and bought them in my normal size, 9D. They fit pretty snug, but I can fit them on whether I am wearing cotton or wool socks. So far, I have found the boots to be so warm and resistant to the elements that I have been fine in cotton socks. I have worn them in the Montana snows and on New York sidewalks and could not be happier. The sole is very cozy, while the tread has a good grip on the ice. I had to give them a ding on the comfort because they are taking a little longer to break in than I would like. There is definitely some pinching on the backs of my feet that makes it difficult to wear them for a long time. But after breaking them in for a few more weeks, I think these should be fine. Overall these are exceptionally well made boots. I look forward to wearing them for years to come!

If you're reading this review, you know what you need to know about this pair of boots ... pull the trigger and buy them. Expensive? Yup. Worth it? Absolutely. There is not a single extraneous element on these boots. Everything is made to be replaced or refurbished. These things are hand sewn in the US and have used the same last (basic shoe shape and form around which the boot is built) as my previous pair ... meaning the fit is perfect. As is the case on any all-leather shoe, the break-in is a little longer ... I found them to be fully broken in within three weeks of near daily wear. Much is made about the lack of traction on these boots. I wore them in Chicago in the dead of the winter last year and would have appreciated a lug sole at that time. But living in the South means ice is only occasionally an issue. This pair joins a pair of Amber Harness Iron Rangers that I've worn practically every day since I bought them 4 years ago. Best boots ever and on my list of ten things that I would take with me to a desert island.

The shoes are sharp! If you are normally size 11, you need to buy a half size down to 10.5 They are slightly narrow but once broken in they fit perfectly.... I was happy I bought them through zapped.

These are great boots - after a couple of weeks, at least. I think they will need a little breaking in but the leather is already pretty soft. Wearing them as everyday shoes and on the motorcycle and they are great for both. I love how they look, too.

I love this boot. It's a bit narrow and the length is just right. The workmanship is first class and the boot just looks great.

I do metal work for a living. I have had two pair of Red Wing 8" logger boots within the last seven years (and I went through three Vibram soles with them at 50 hours a week). I loved them. My only complaint is the heavy Vibram sole and my cold feet in the winter. The blacksmith was appealing because of the lighter weight, 6" height, and lighter cork sole. I wear them 50 hours a week. The leather feels chalky and needs mink oil as stated from other customers; the logger boot leather is more pleasing to touch. The blacksmith boot never gave blisters right out of the box though. However I am disappointed with the partial triple stitching as every seam should be triple stitched at this price. Real work boots deserve complete triple stitching throughout. The leather footbed and cork outsole feels similar to a leather sole, and may leave some desiring more cushion if you are used to softer landings. The cork sole provides good grip. Not excellent but enough for my purpose. And seems to ward off shards of razor blades left on any sheet metal shop floor. Get you some wool socks for winter with these boots. I like them overall. But for the life of me I cannot understand why it is so impossible to have the eyelets punched in the same places for both left and right. Maybe you will have better luck. I wear 10½ in Red Wing logger/blacksmith and 10½ in wolverine 1,000 mile. I would personally rate the blacksmith an eight because of the lack of triple stitching throughout and unevenly punched eyelets from left to right.

I bought my current pair in 2010 and have worn them hard over the last five years. While these boots cant compete with custom Whites or Nicks, they are well made handsome boots. I would concur that they run a half to full size larger than marked. The construction and durability is outstanding. However, as has been noted, the soles have no traction and are terrible in ice and snow. What I advise is locating a good cobbler and having the boot re-soled right off the bat. I had mine re-soled with a double leather mid sole and Vibram half sole mini lug with a stacked heel. (Like a beefier version of the Beckman) I cannot advise this enough and do not know why Red Wing does not make them that way to begin with...

Great looking boots and built like all Red Wings with quality and durability in mind. Boots fit to size and are comfortable fight out of the box. I always add a Red Wing custom insole to all my boots for added comfort.

I've been wearing 6" Moc Toe boots to work for over a decade now. I've tried many different brands but these are hands down the absolute best. They're expensive, but you get what you pay for when it comes to boots. I wear these for at least 10 hours a day, nearly every day. My last pair of Red Wings were the Chukka boots and they lasted 1.5 years. Red Wings feel pretty tight when you first get them but they do loosen up quite a bit as you break them in. I would recommend going to a Red Wing store to have your boots correctly sized if you've never worn this brand before. Break in period can be brutal, but once they mold to your feet, they are extremely comfortable. I typically bring my old boots to work during break in and change if my feet hurt too much. These boots are part of the Heritage line. I own 3 other styles in this series, Beckmans, Iron Rangers, and Engineer. I wear those after work and they are all extremely solid and comfortable as well. Those will probably last a decade or more. The thing that separates these boots from a lot of the other brands is that they don't have the cheap foam padding inside and they aren't just glued together. They are just made out of heavy leather and are stitched solidly together. The solid leather holds up much better than foam and nylon interiors, which tend to rip and crumble fairly quick. The all leather construction means that these boots will still feel comfortable until you burn through the soles, and then you can have them re-soled if you wish. Even the footbed is leather, which molds to your foot. Personally, I find them extremely comfortable without any insoles. If you have to wear boots to work, you owe it to your feet to wear good boots and these will definitely fit the bill.
